 Link to Registration Instructions for MyMathLab (includes ebook access)

Students should investigate prices and formats to decide about what/how to purchase to best fit the individual student’s needs regarding format and cost. The bookstore rents and sells print books and sells access codes. Some used books may include valid unused access codes while others may not - inquire at the bookstore. If you purchase access online directly, which includes the ebook, it is less expensive than purchasing an access code in the bookstore. Therefore for many students, the most economical way is probably to buy the access code online and use the ebook within MyMathLab. Students with financial aid vouchers may need to purchase their access codes in the bookstore since financial aid vouchers usually are not applicable to online purchase of access codes. At the start of the quarter, an email will be sent to students with a pdf attachment with a class code and instructions for logging into MyMathLab to access the course.
